Background

  • 2008 – 2012 project

  • 2008-2009 – spent in review

  • We concentrated on the ‘lived experience’ of curriculum design.


Findings of our Review

Programme teams reported that this focus on the products of curriculum design rather than the process of curriculum design detracts from rich team discourse and innovative solutions to curriculum design challenges.

In summary, our approval practices were perceived to tend to stifle innovation and required a documentary overhead that is seen by staff as being disproportionate to its value.


Across the JISC Projects


Across the JISC Projects – new ‘things’


BCU’s Solution


BCU’s Solution


Novel use of multimedia

  • In project reporting

  • In programme design

  • In other projects across the University too


It works!


It’s scalable

  • Our University Senate has given approval for the new processes (subject to successful pilots)

  • Software architecture has been designed from the ground-up for University-wide scalability

  • Need to articulate with SRS has been considered and is development is convergent

  • We have developed parallel mechanisms for supporting staff in relation to their pedagogic/design needs
